In which our plucky young hero been there, done that.
For the sake of your mental health, you should remember the canonical rule about everything you write online:
1. Assume that anything you put online can and will be published on the front page of the New York Times, and moderate yourself accordingly.
To this, I propose adding this rule:
2. Assume that everyone who reads what you have to say will, at the moment they read it, be drunk and full of incoherent rage, ready to slit the throat of anyone at all what even just looks at 'em funny. On top of that, they've held a grudge against you for years and now good old-fashioned Dutch courage means they can finally do something about it. Also, assume that they will be standing right behind you at that moment. Make sure your writing will not agitate the murderous drunkard who hates you.
And, of course:
Rule 2a: If you are posting on any public diary site whose domain name ends in "ournal.com", everything you say will violate rule #2.(Browse: previous or next. Notes: post or read.)
